Product Description


‘…the style is natural and fluid. He has some controversial suggestions…But that’s what makes it such an interesting, rejuvenating read; rather than spouting the same old ideas, the proposed changes are revolutionary and disruptive. Just like the greatest entrepreneurs’  (Talk Business, April 2013) ‘The book is superb. Straight talking. Nothing complex about technology, social media or strategy, but some very simple home truths that are very difficult to argue against…This book gave me a jolt. It forced me to look at our business model, reinforced my belief in entrepreneurship and taught me a few new things – all the things you want from a good book’ (, July 2013)

5.0 out of 5 stars The most important book I have ever read 22 May 2014
This book, which I have now read 3 or 4 times has had a very deep effect on me. It is the most inspirational and motivational book I have ever read and as such felt compelled to write a review to urge you to purchase it.

If you are anything like me you will have the following feelings:
- urges to 'do your own thing'
- Hate answering to a person
- Get frustrated with having to work based on time schedules
- feel like a caged animal
- Feel like that there should be something else that you should be doing
- Have tried self employment various times
- Live for the weekend
- Can't wait until you retire so you can do all those fun things

and so on...

After my second failed attempt at trying to run my own business, a friend recommended The Entrepreneur Revolution. Suddenly all those feelings I've had, my previous failed attempts at starting a business, all made sense. I had been approaching my whole life and work the wrong way.
I can't stress how satisfying it is to be able to understand why things don't work and more importantly what to do to fix it. This book has taught me all of these things and more.

I apologise if I'm being ridiculously gushing about this book but I honestly think that this book is a blueprint to how you should try and live your life let alone become a succesful business person.

I have already started implementing many of the advice and strategies laid out in this book and things are starting to go from strength to strength. I'm not saying that this book will miraculously turn you into a business god, that is down to you, but it will give you the strategies that you need to implement to get you there.

Good luck

5.0 out of 5 stars An inspiring and practical read. 20 Nov. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
An inspiring and practical read. I listened to most of this audiobook during a twelve-hour drive from Harare, Zimbabwe to Blantyre, Malawi.

My notes:

Daniel Priestley talks about how we all have an empire building brain, however, the empire brain can be shut down if the lower parts of the brain (reptile or monkey) are over stimulated. The reptile sees resources as very scarce so it's extremely selfish, guarded and doesn't want to share; it only sees what is there; it's very low in imagination. The monkey is good at repetitive work but is very easily distracted. The empire builder is empathic, creative, strategic, resourceful.

As one of his 10 challenges, he recommends walking around with GBP1,000 in cash at all times to adjust your views on what is a lot of money, to learn a degree of self-control and I suppose to discover other fears and emotions that go with carrying what most of us would consider to be a fairly hefty, even unsafe, amount of cash.

Take two people you want to get to know better out to lunch every week.

Cut news out. Keep a journal.

Always have 5 people on your team:
1. A visionary
2. A sales person
3. A graphics person
4. A Swiss Army knife (i.e. a jack of all trades)
5. A mentor

Lean in! i.e. go for it, network aggressively, seek opportunities, visualise and believe in the vision!

Formula for success: luck, reputation and vitality

Ascending Transaction Model - ATM:
- Gifts
- Products for prospects
- Core products
- Logical next steps (charge a few thousand for these)

7 Maxims
1. You get what you pitch for and you are always pitching
2. Influence comes from output NOT confidence

5.0 out of 5 stars The secret ingredients for business success 25 Mar. 2013
Daniel's book is an easy-to-read page turner. It offers the reader inspired business advice intertwined with a humanitarian message that reminds us what the ultimate purpose of entrepreneurship is to create a life for ourselves that is full of passion and purpose, one that enables us to give back and help others. The book explains the background to the new entrepreneurial economy, explains how NOW is the best ever time to grow a business that you love, and gives clear directions on how to do that. Our goal is to create something remarkable for our customer. The book prods us out of our lethargy with sentences like "Ideas are worthless, implementation is everything" or "keep creating", "don't waste a day" - just what you need when you've fallen into one of those "Can't be ar**ed" frames of mind that sabatoge your progress. There are lots of ingredients in this book to help you build a global small business. The catalyst has to be action in line with your inner calling.

I’ve just finished reading Daniel Priestley’s remarkable “Entrepreneur Revolution” having filled it with notes and underlining. I immediately want to re-read it to list and prioritise all the points I need to implement.

The initial analysis of reptile, monkey and empire builder brain types are both entertaining and insightful. This inspires me to be more self-aware of how I spend my time and how I react to opportunities and threats.

Priestley’s genius shines through clear ideas that make perfect sense, but ones I wouldn’t have necessarily connected myself. A great example is his Ascending Transaction Model (“ATM”) – a process that I’ve so far failed to implement but am now determined to do so.

The golden nugget is the penultimate chapter in which Priestley challenges us to create not consume: “When you replace your entire day with acts of creation, you will have energy. When you fill your day with consumption you will burn out”.

Priestley has successfully distilled ideas I’ve read elsewhere, but haven’t been so elegantly articulated. The strange but beautiful truth is that to find success you need to switch off your “receive mode” and constantly be in “transmit mode”. Priestley illustrates this as “stop reading books and write your own book. Stop attending events, plan your own event. Stop reading the news, start creating something newsworthy ….”

If you’re serious about starting or growing your own business, read this book.
